How Deep is Minnesota Snow? Now You Can Know!

"Weekly Snow Depth and Snow Depth Ranking Maps"
University of Minnesota's Minnesota Climatology Working Group (last update January 29, 2009)

If your life won't be complete, if you don't know just how much snow has fallen on Minnesota, there's hope! The University of Minnesota's MCWG puts maps online at weekly intervals (more or less), showing how much snow is where in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and 10,000,000,000 Mosquitoes.

(from Weekly Snow Depth and Snow Depth Ranking Maps, used without permission)

From what I see on the map, and what's outside where I live, my guess is that the color coding goes to feet and inches after the color for eight inches. I wouldn't mind seeing an explanation for that somewhere.

For what it's worth, that means that there's a foot and a few inches of snow on the ground around here - on average.

There are "snow depth ranking" maps, too, and an explanation of what that means.

They've got maps going back to the winter of 1996-97.
